Personalizing names of granted shares possible?

Well, maybe I’m the only one with this “problem” but working with different teams I’ve experienced something disturbing:

Folders shared with me may or groups I’m participating use sometimes a very strange “naming convention”. In most of the cases this “naming convention” is not my style of ordering names. So I have to work with something like this:

Groups:

  • THE_GROUP
  • w!ckedGroup
  • OurGroup

For the owners of the groups this may be funny but to keep a certain structure working with several groups it is just awful this way. Same with shared folders:

  • THE_GROUP
    THE_FOLDER
    THE_PRESENTATION
    THE_FINAL_FOLDER

(this is not something I’ve invented, some people like to name folders like this!)

I think Seafile handles all data with unique IDs. So my question: would it be possible to give me the possibility to rename the groups and folders in a way that the new names are only visible to me?
The original name of the group/folder can be visible by hovering the mouse over the name.

The original names would still be

  • THE_GROUP
    THE_FOLDER
    THE_PRESENTATION
    THE_FINAL_FOLDER

but I would see:

  • Study group summer 2016
    thesis learning material
    thesis presentation
    thesis final
